Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer has seemingly conceded that Bastian Schweinsteiger could still leave the club this summer.

The 30-year-old is on Manchester United’s shortlist, but he has recently insisted that he is keen on remaining with the German giants and adding another Bundesliga title to the trophy cabinet.
However, with just a year remaining on his current contract, it remains to be seen whether or not the German international plays out his deal and leaves on a free next summer, or commits his long term future to the club.
Bayern will undoubtedly want to avoid losing him for nothing next year, and so Sammer didn’t rule a summer transfer out altogether as he welcomed new signing Douglas Costa to the club at a press conference.
“Basically, nothing is excluded. It’s a crazy world,” Sammer said, as reported by Sky Sports.
“He has clearly expressed that he is an important part of the team, but let’s see. We’re still waiting.”
Schweinsteiger doesn’t appear to be in any great rush to resolve his future, while he was also one of several Germany stars that missed Wednesday’s first pre-season session in Munich as he has been seen at Wimbledon supporting Ana Ivanovic.
